Robert Coover Discussing the Mainstream

Robert Coover is one of the great living American avant-garde writers.  His work frequently deals with the interplay between media and reality, in short stories like The Babysitter (collected in Pricksongs & Descants), collections like A Night at the Movies, as well as being a major part in his novels and novellas.  A contemporary of John Barth and Donald Barthelme, Coover is a major advocate of hypertext fiction and continuing to push literature into unexplored territories.
